What I don't get

Posted by Raznor

So apparently John McCain has an ad that says Obama "made time to go to the gym, but canceled a visit with wounded troops," while showing an image of Obama playing basketball with the troops in Kuwait. And I'm thinking, if you're going to be that dishonest, why not just make stuff up? Why not just accuse Obama of being a baby-eater or something?

Hey look, another post

Posted by Raznor

So just nonpolitical video blogging I guess, but I just love this song so much I must post it - "Love Me Dead" by Ludo.

Also, what the hell, this song always makes me happy - "Young Folks" by Peter, Bjorn and John.

I'm still alive

Just thought I'd post this primer on what's metal:

. . . and while I'm posting Adult Swim videos, here's something the mass media won't tell you:

And on the subject of dead celebrities, Pollak sums my thoughts well on his most recent toons here and here. Plus what he said about Helms:

Jesse Helms actually hated black people. And no one punished him for it. He retired, having been re-elected repeatedly by a majority of North Carolinians who decided that something like this wasn't racist at all, because they're fucking assholes. And when you watch that, keep in mind this isn't the remnants of a racist past that has advanced with the rest of the country. That ad was from 1990. And when it became socially awkward for Helms to openly degrade the existence of blacks, he switched to open hatred of gays.

He hated people who loved each other. He hated people who loved music. He hated parents who wanted a public education system and music programs to make them smarter and more artistic and more open to the beauty of this world than a vile person like him was ever capable of being. He hated art. He hated.

Anyway, so does this post mean a return to blogging. Maybe. I have a job htat doesn't require me to stand in a kitchen all day, so that gives me more energy. Maybe the blog shall return.
